Barrier Islands sugar maple grove Basswood, Sugar Maple, Tulip Poplar, Beech, Birch, and Hemlock trees are a few of the tree species in the Applachian Plateau. Some other plant species includes some
Rhododendron species,
Native Azaleas, and
Mountain Laurel The Appalachian Plateau is made up of sedimentary rock, limestone, and black shale.The soil is also ladled with clay that is similar to the rocks and soil in the Valley and Ridge region. Fossils may also be found in this region. Pink Rhododenron The logging industry is vast due to the many trees in
this region. Also, the tourism and mining industries
flourish because of the beautiful landscape and many
minerals. Cloudland Canyon National Park The Appalachian Plateau is located in the northwest corner of Georgia and is bordered by the Ridge and Valley region. It is one of the smallest of the five regions of Georgia. It has a vast mountainous landscape which contains many different kinds of flora and fauna. Some animals of the appalachian Plateau include the American Black Bear, White-Tailed Deer, Rainbow Trout, Eastern Cottontails, and Diamond Back Rattle Snakes. Regions Pigeon Mountain The Ridge and Valley region is another northwestern region of Georgia that is bordered by the Appalachian Plateau, Blue Ridge, and Piedmont region. The Ridge and Valley region is a relatively small region too. It has a very diverse ecosystem that is filled with ridges, valleys, and rock quarries. Limestone Wooden logs American Black Bear Rockmart Slate Folds Fauna of the Ridge and Valley region includes species of Red Foxes, Raccoons, Beavers, Chipmunks, Coyotes, Hummingbirds, and Hawks and so much more! Red foxes Flora of the Ridge and Valley region includes different species of Willow trees, Rhododendrens, Trillium, Mountain Laurel, Blackberry bushes, Oak trees, Hickory Trees, and many others! Soil type in the Ridge and Valley region is a mixture of minerals and clay. Rocks in this region are typically sedimentary (limestone and shale) and occasionally metamorphic (quarts and marble). Industries in the Ridge and Valley region of Georgia includes Logging, Grain farming, Peach and Apple orchards, Dairy, Poultry, and Livestock. Lookout Mountain Appalachian Mts. Barrier
Islands The Appalachian Mountains extend from the
northeastern section of the united states
and stretches all the way down to northern Georgia.This mountain range is a popular place for tourism in the United states because of the spectacular sights, abundant fishing streams, and many fantastic resorts. Cumberland Island Appalachian Mountains The Barrier Islands of Georgia
are protection for the inland coast
from major storm damage. However,
over the years they have become a
popular vacation spot for tourists. Some
of the main Barrier Islands are Wassaw,
Ossabaw, Blackbeard, Wolf, Jekyll, and
Cumberland. St. Marys River is located on the
border of Georgia and Florida. It is
known for it's vast fishing industry
and many ports and docks. The St. Marys river is an important water route connecting Georgia to Florida. The Okefenokee swamp is a gigantic swamp
with almost 402,000 acres of marshes, lakes,
islands, and forests. The swamp has a varying
number of wild life and plant life which can
range from the alligators that lurk in the
murky water to the vast cypress forests. Savannah River In the Blue Ridge region of georgia the fauna includes species of Deer, geese, owls, several species of hawks, pregrine falcons, herons, bald and golden eagles, kingfishers, osprey, grizzly bears, and lots lots more. The Flora of the Blue Ridge region of Georgia includes an assortment of plants such as the Pecan tree, Rhododendrens, Pine trees, Day Lillies, Dafodils, Oak trees, Hickory trees, some Hemlock trees and so many more. The soil of the BLue Ridge region
is a thick brown and red clay. The rocks of the Blue Ridge region has an array of quartzite, schist, gneiss, limestone, sandstones, and many other kinds of rocks. Schist White-Tailed Deer Fawn Weeping Willow Limestone Georgia Peaches Pecan Tree Some of the main industries on the Blue Ridge region includes Farming (Dairy, Beef,
Poultry, and livestock), Logging, Tourism, Orchards, and some Fishing. The Savannah river is located in Savannah Georgia. The Savannah river shares the border between Georgia and South Carolina. It has two tributaries, the Tugaloo River and the Chattooga River. The river is tidal in Savannah Georgia but spreads out into an estuary know as the Tybee Roads before it runs into the Atlantic Ocean. The Blue Ridge region is also a very spacious region. This region in Georgia is very mountainous and has a lot of fauna and flora. Our school is in this region as well as most of our homes. Union County Middle School :D The Fall line is a geological boundary that seperates the Piedmont region from the Upper Coastal region of Georgia. The Fall line is borded with waterfalls which was very difficult in early ages to cross over. The Piedmont region of Georgia has a flat and hilly along with some prairies. This region also has the capital of Georgia, Atlanta, which is the largest city as well. The Piedmont region has some of the most major cities in Georgia. This is a reason is has very poular tourist attractions. The Piedmont region Chattahoochee river The Chattahoochee river is one of the largest rivers in Georgia. It is a very important habitat for both wild life and plant life. Many people also enjoy using this river for recreation. The river begins in the northeasten River in the Chattahoochee springs of Georgia until it merges with Flint river and other tributaries near Bainbridge to form the Apalachicola River on the Florida pan handle. Chattahoochee river Fauna in the Piedmont region is very different from the Fauna in the more northern region of Georgia. Fauna includes Bunnies, armadillos, porcupines, raccoons, tortoises, rats, some species of garden snakes, opossums, and other small land creatures. Manufacturers in the Piedmont region of Georgia can include jobs such as mineral mining, construction in cities, orchards, subtle farming, and diverse jobs in cities. Benitoitel White-Tailed baby bunny The soil towards the north is mostly a clay mixture.
However, in the southern end of the Piedmont region
is more of a sand mixture. Rocks in this region are mostly sandstone, limestone, and some metamorphic rocks due to ancient
shifting tectonic plates. Sand The flora of the Piedmont region is different from the more northern regions too. These plants usually require a little more sunlight and different types soil. Some of these plants include the Black Walnut tree, White Basswood trees, Rattlesnake Ferns, Mistflowers,Cutleaf Coneflowers, and many different kinds of oak, hickory, maple, ash, and elm trees. Black Walnut tree The upper coastal plain region of Georgia is the top half of the whole coastal plain region. This region is flat with some hills and slopes and has a few prairies too. This region is different from its other more marine half because it's surrounded by more land. Upper Coastal Plain region The Upper Coastal Plain region of Georgia is slightly different from it's neighboring lower half when it comes to the flora. Long leaf pine and wiregrass occupy a great amount of the Upper Coastal Plain. But some of the native species of flora includes Long leaf pine, wiregrass, sweet shrubs, cotton and peanut plants, live oaks, and so much more flora is in the Upper Coastal plain. Long Leaf pines and wiregrass Fauna is the Upper Coastal Plain region of Georgia are built for living in the prairie. Some fauna such as the Gray Fox have adapted a fur color to blend in with the grass. Fauna in the Upper Coastal Plain region includes the Gray Fox, Feild Mice, Rabits, Coyotes, some species of owls, bobcats, and some species of toads, and more. Gray Fox In the Upper Coastal Plain region, the soil is mixed.
Most of the soil is from marine deposits. However,
clay is also in the mixture along with some limestone
deposition. The soil in this region can be incredibly variable though. In the Upper Coastal PLain region of Georgia, there are several different kinds of manufacturers. There is a lot of good planting space for peanut, peach, and cotton plants. Other Main Manufacturers includes subtle farming, some fishing, some mineral mining, and industry. Peanuts This region is the Lower Coastal Plain of Georgia. It has the most oceanic access out of all of the Georgian regions. This region is mostly flatlands and has multiple barrier islands and wet lands. The Lower Coastal Plain of Georgia is also home to popular ocean tourist attractions. The Lower Coastal PLain region The Fauna in the Lower Coastal Plain region is extremely different
from the other regions in Georgia. This is because of the marine water access. These animals differ greatly from the animals in fresh water. So Fauna in the Lower Coastal Plain region includes Loggerhead Sea Turtles, Manatees, some foxes, some snakes, different species of fish, sea otters, wild boars and much more. Loggerhead Sea turtle hatchling Most of the soil in the Lower Coastal plain region is mixed with sand. Mineral deposits and limestone deposition are in the soil too. Rocks in this region are usually sedimantary from all of the ancient oceans deposits. Sand Fishing in the Lower Coastal Plain Region is a leading industring and is widely manufactured in the coast. But towards the main land, like it's upper half, manufactures peanut, cotton, and peach plants, and also has subtle farming and mineral mining. Jumping Sword Fish Near the more tropical coastal areas of the Lower Coastal Plain region of Georgia the flora changes. It becomes more tropical. Some of the Flora includes Palm trees, sea grass, oak trees, gum trees, cypress trees, some tropical flowers and many more. Palm tree Atlanta Atlanta is the capital of Georgia. It's the largest city in Georgia too, and perhaps one one the busiest! Atlanta is home to one of the busiest airports in the United States, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Atlanta also has Six Flags over Georgia. Atlanta Ridges and Valleys The Georgia Aquarium holds over 8 million gallons of water. This aquarium is also the biggest in the world! The Georgia Aquarium has many different types of aquatic life. It's also a big tourist attraction in Atlanta. Georgia Aquarium Brasstown Bald is the highest point in Georgia. It's a popular attraction in the Blue Ridge region. Brasstown Bald By: Emily Dietrich Albany Albany is a major city in Georgia.
It was once inhabited by the Creek indian tribe. Albany also has many pecan groves, pine trees, plantations and farms. Albany, Georgia Tybee island is an island off the coast of Savannah, Georgia. It has many attractions like it's ports and museums and a great old lighthouse. A 4-h camp is near this island too. Tybee Island Blue Ridge Region Ruby Falls in a waterfall located in the Blue Ridge Region. It is America's highest underground waterfall. People can tour through the underground cavern. People can also see the veiws from top of the Lookout Mountain Tower. Ruby Falls Berry college is located in Rome, Georgia. It has the world's largest college campus. Berry College Cows In 1828 Auraria near the city of Dahlongea was where the first Gold Rush in America took place. Auraria F.D. Roosevelt State Park F.D. Roosevelt State Park is the largest state park in Georgia Pigeon Mountain is found in the extreme northwestern section of Georgia. Pigeon Mountain is a popular climbing spot.
You can divide the mountain up by it's two main climbing areas Rocktown and the Lost Wall. Lookout Mountain is found in the upmost corner of northwest Geogria. The Mountain lies on the Georgia-Tennessee border and has a spectacular view of both states. We are currently in Blairsville, Georgia. Blairsville has a historic town square that has a huge clock tower in it. Inside the building there is artifacts about our town. Blairsville, Georgia Savannah Georgia was founded by General James Edward Oglethorpe, who sailed from England. It is located in the east coast of Georgia. Savannah's population is approximately 296,000 people. Fun facts: Parts of the movie Forest Gump were filmed here and Juliette Low, the founder of Girl Scouts, was born here. Savannah, Georgia Plains Georgia is home of Jimmy Carter, the 39th president of the United States Plains, Georgia Cordele Georgia claims
to be the watermelon capital of Georgia. Cordele, Georgia James Edward Oglethorpe The founder of Georgia, James Edward Oglethorpe, first landed in Savannah, Georgia when he sailed here from England. But together it's all one big ecosystem that's blending together to create the wonderful state of Georgia. Thanks for wacthing ^_^!! If the pioneers had already crossed th Fall line, they had the Blue Ridge mountains to transverse. These mountains were an extreme geological boundary for pioneers. Pioneers Cloudland canyon National park is part of lookout mountain. It is one of the most scenic places in north Georgia. Hikers can enjoy walking down a series of steps to the floor of the canyon. The ridge and valley region is exactly it's name. The region has many different individual ridges and valleys. Ridges and Valleys Plains, Georgia
